Back in 2014, the Sims 4 was launched and from what we know so far, the franchise has had a great response from the fan community and has managed to make some solid revenue.
Will the Sims 5 be published soon by Electronic Arts?
It seems that EA will publish a new game for the Sims series if they see that there is enough revenue from the current Sims 4, which at the moment is going pretty well on PC. EA did not give any details about the sales numbers, but as we mentioned before, the company must have gained a substantial amount of money, taking into consideration the success of the Sims 4. Most probably, the new Sims 5 will be launched soon, but we will have more details about the release in the future.
Do we have a launch date for the Sims 5?
Based on what we know until now, the Sims 4 fans seem to greatly enjoy the present version of the game. There are still things happening around this game and it might seem highly unlikely for any new game to be released in the following two or three years. Also, taking into consideration the fact that only 9 solid expansion packs have been released for the existing game shows that the Sims 4 is far from its end.
In addition, there are several bugs that still need to be fixed and the developers are expected to add new features to the current game before releasing a new one. Therefore, we cannot talk about a launch date yet.
There is a theory, however, that the development of the Sims 5 has already started, which may not necessarily come as a surprise when we think about the amount of time and resources needed to develop a new title. We might have to wait a little bit longer for an actual release date to be revealed, which obviously depends on the lifecycle of the Sims 4 game.
